My cooking tragedies
I still haven't mastered chicken and dumplings the way my grandmother/great-aunt made them!

Italian Dressing Mix
I quite liked this recipe, but agree that it included much too much salt. I used granulated garlic and only 1 tablespoon of salt instead of what was called for in the recipe. I also added 1/4 teaspoon of chili flakes to give it a bit more zing. I finished up the original batch I made the night before last, and just whipped a double batch to replace it...!
